She is well versed in both forms of delivery many forms of pain management.
" I believe in women finding their own voice and empowerment in giving birth and having a supported birth experience. What being a doula means to me is being someone that people can lean on when sometimes a birth doesn't go as planned. My goal is for the client to always feel that I am supportive no matter what their birth choices may be"
Kandy is new to the Doula business. She decided to become a doula after the birth of her second child.
" With my first child I was by myself and had a very small support team. After being released from hospital the day after my daughter was born I didn't have many people to go to for advice and help, I had been alone all of pregnancy and was not prepared for everything that changed once my daughter was here. With my second pregnancy Chery was my doula, and my experience was so amazing. She not only helped me by offering me alternate methods to ease the pain and discomfort, but she also made herself available to go to doctors appointments with me. Checked in often to make sure the pregnancy was going well, and during delivery she not only was my partner and support, but she was my boyfriends support as well. Neither of us could have done it without her. She was amazing. Her kindness and support has made me want to help other mothers through this amazing day. "
Penticton Doulas, is about helping moms through one of the most important times of their lives.
